    If the weight of the bag is important for you, do consider the synapse 19 as well. It's lighter and cheaper and still fits a 13 inch laptop in the main compartment.

    I'd definitely buy a smart Alec new if offered again, but I'm not into the Guide's Edition vibe, personally. I liked the two tone of the ballistic ones though and think the all black halcyon is good...

    Is the main compartment zip on the Synik chunkier than the one used on the synapses? I'm thinking of the S19 here since that's what I have.

    @Darcy

    These external dimensions don't quite add up - I think the conversion from inches to mm has gone astray - for instance, 16 inches equates to about 400 mm, definitely not 490mm!

    I use my pop tote on Ryanair (personal item size = 40 x 25 x 20cm, so 16 x 10 x 8 inches) and I pack it to top of outside pockets only, then it fits the sizer easily.
